This 150-seat cinema is located in an old brick-built warehouse in the former port area of Katajanokka in Helsinki. The overall colour scheme of the modernized auditorium is a combination of playful silver and stylish black, with a two-part installation "Stars" in glistening silver on the walls, creating allusions to the film-star cult through the gazes of the influential Finnish screen legends Regina Linnanheimo and Tauno Palo.

We think that adaptability is more important than flexibility when it comes to creative collaboration.
The ability to tell the same story, even if the amount of pages in the book would change. With the experience of hundreds of both small and large projects, we can deduce that even though we are very proud of what we have accomplished, the merit for our best work goes to our clients. They have shared our point of view, that we can succeed only because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work in, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are a creative design and architecture office, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
